It’s been called “Wisconsin’s Stonehenge” – it is a must-see! No photos or
descriptions do it justice! This place is unique in all the world. It has been said that
Kinstone features the largest privately owned stone circle in the world. This has not
been confirmed, but it must be close! There are literal tons and tons of granite
boulders, standing stones and sculptures. Come to enjoy the beauty of the space, see
the gardens and natural buildings, find a spot for quiet contemplation and re-
connect to nature, or take a circuitous walk around to visit the stones and
Kinstone is located in rural Fountain City just off County Road M on Cole Bluff Lane.
It is a contemplative, park-like place with spectacular views and intriguing
sculptures and structures. This 30-acre bluff-top property has over 110 standing
stones including three stone circles, megalithic dolmen, classic 7-circuit labyrinth,
thatched cordwood chapel, dry-stack stone sculpture, natural buildings,
permaculture gardens, and more. There are several alignments of interest at
Summer and Winter Solstice and the Equinoxes. Kinstone has an Education Center
where many courses and workshops are hosted that focus on topics for a healthy
body, mind and spirit. Topics like artistic expression, creativity, spirituality, yoga,
food preservation, holistic health, permaculture, sustainable living and more. Come
to be inspired to regenerate, relearn and revive.
